Except unforeseen of last hour, Xavi Hernández will be able to have his complete staff for the party of the quarter-finals of the Glass of Rey, this Wednesday 25 against the Real Sociedad in the Spotify Camp Nou. In addition to recovering to the two players sanctioned in LaLiga, Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres, the trainer egarense also will be able to have those that were 'touched'.

Andreas Christensen was the player that more woke up suspicions in the Barça after it had to ask the change, this Sunday against the Getafe, by some annoyances in the isquiotibiales, but from the club have full conviction that it will be in the list of summoned for the crash against the 'realistic', as it has informed 'Sportive World'.

It will not be the only that will be in the XI of Xavi, put the trainer will recover to two footballers that have remained without seeing action in the last two parties: Frenkie of Jong and Ronald Araújo. Although against the Ceuta had rested, and remained in Barcelona, went an authentic surprise that remained in the bench in front of the Getafe, place came being two very used players.

Xavi recognised, in room of press, that were not to 100% and that thus it decided to give them rest. However, against the Real Sociedad already are smart to return to the announcement and, besides, be headlines. Everything aims to that the egarense will go back to bet by Araújo and Christensen in the axis of the saga, with Koundé in the side, whereas Frenkie of Jong will form part of a line of four in the medullary.

They return Lewandowski and Ferran

On the other hand, the return of Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres, sanctioned in LaLiga, results a key factor in the plans of Xavi Hernández. Against the Getafe, only could have four alternatives for the line of attack (Dembélé, Ansu Fati, Raphinha and Alarcón) and finished taking out to the Brazilian, in the final minutes, to add to a midfield player more.

This time, in front of the Real Sociedad, the history will be very different and Xavi will have two alternatives more in his forward. Lewandowski Will be to title except twist of unexpected script, whereas -probably- Ferran Torres will have to expect from the bench by an opportunity.
